Treats for the GFCF and Special Diets in Victoria

Having safe treats for birthdays and holidays is always a challenge for those on Special Diets - let's be honest most of us aren't Master Bakers!  However, now there is another great option with Cupcake Heaven up in Sidney.  Aside from baking terribly tasty and funky treats, they are willing to cater to many diet requests, including Gluten-free baking.   Not only that, they try to make sure those goodies are just as decadent and naughty as the original.

It's definitely worth the short drive but make sure you've called to pre-order; regular stock does sell out and specialty cupcakes are made to order.

Mmm!  What a happy find!

Resources for Autism Spectrum and Special Diets

I'd like to take a quick break from hormones to point out two fantastic magazines: Living Without and The Autism File.  Living Without focuses on support and ideas for those with Special Diets, with extra tips for those starting a Gluten and/or Casein Free diet.  The Autism File is a newer North American Publication with articles spanning many aspects of ASD life and families.

I am grateful for both for providing comprehensive and well-researched information and for maintaining fantastic websites.  For any families working with diet restrictions, have a look at Living Without for their archived recipes.
